Join the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB), the Welcoming Inclusion Network (WIN) the Fairfax County Special Education PTA (SEPTA) and community partners for a screening of “Intelligent Lives” on Monday, December 10, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. at Robinson Secondary School Recital Hall, 5053 Sideburn Road, Fairfax. Following the screening, a panel of local representatives will discuss post-secondary transitions for students with special needs in the Fairfax County and the Cities of Falls Church and Fairfax. “Intelligent Lives” is a film that highlights, and attempts to transform, the label of “intellectual disability” and challenges the viewer to examine how we can all work to change lives lived in isolation into lives of possibility. “Intelligent Lives” stars three young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer and Naomie – who defy perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film examines and challenges the continuing practice of intelligence testing in the U.S. “Intelligent Lives” also challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment and intimate relationships. Register for free tickets. In addition to the screening and the panel, attendees can talk with representatives from the CSB, WIN, SEPTA, the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, ServiceSource, George Mason University Disability Services, The Arc of Northern Virginia, Fairfax County Public Schools' Career and Transition Services, and Brandon Cassady, a graduate of FCPS and Purdue University.

October 9, 2018
"Written Off" is a unique first-person account of substance use disorder The opioid crisis has left a trail of broken lives, families, and communities across the nation, and Fairfax County is not immune from this crisis. There are many factors that contribute to the crisis but the impact of stigma  ̶  the negative attitudes and beliefs directed towards people with substance use disorder and mental illness  ̶  is significant and often prevents individuals, families and friends from recognizing the warning signs of substance use disorder. And even after they do, stigma can keep them from seeking care. The documentary Written Off is challenging conventional thinking about addiction. The hour-long film tells the true story of a young man named Matt whose journals chronicle his 10-year struggle to escape dependency on prescription painkillers. By taking the viewer inside an individual’s fight against opioids, Written Off combats stigma and humanizes the victim like the movie Philadelphia did for HIV/AIDS. Fairfax County is using the film to initiate community conversations about stigma to create an environment where talking about mental health and substance use disorder is no different than talking about cancer or diabetes. Each of us can change the way we think about addiction, and together we can break down stigma and save lives. Please plan to join us at an upcoming film screening and discussion. Upcoming public screening events Thursday, November 15, 2018 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Chantilly Regional Library, 4000 Stringfellow Road, Chantilly Register to attend. Thursday, December 6, 2018 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Sherwood Regional Library, 2501 Sherwood Hall Lane, Alexandria Register to attend.
